Research
General Information

Most recently, she has held executive positions in sales and business development for several medical device companies focused on drug delivery technology and surgical techniques for orthopedics and interventional cardiology. Hazelwood has worked closely with surgeons and area hospitals in a clinical setting, and has collaborated on numerous projects with medical device companies. She received her doctorate in Biomedical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology. Her research emphasis is in Sports Medicine and Tranlational Research, focusing on the development of efficacious medical devices and physiologic methods which improve public health, espcially obesity prevention and pain management. Her successes include the clinical use of several developments for minimally invasive evaluation, earlier stage detection of disease, and assistive technologies for the handicapped. She joins the Chemical, Biomedical, and Materials Engineering Department as Associate Program Director and Industry Professor.
